Hawaii Volcanoes National Park - Study # 2

6" x 8" Acrylic on panel

This is not your usual "postcard" type pretty scene typically shown of Hawaii.   It is a part of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park that has hardened lava and is more like a desert, due to the acid rain from the frequent volcanic eruptions.   I found this area very interesting and unique and wanted to capture on canvas  something a little out of the ordinary for me as an artist and to expose the viewer to a glimpse of Hawaii few expect to see in a tropical island.   Actually, the Big Island of Hawaii where Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is located, has a mix of habitats in seven ecological life zones from seacoast to rain forest and so on to upland forest and alpine.  

Please contact me if you are interested in this or another painting.  Your comments are always welcome.
